Here is something you may not know about me. I am a fan of professional wrestling. I have been seen since I was a kid, and I don't see myself not being one in the future. I would even say that I have been a wrestling fan as long as I have been a fan of comic books. With a name like Action Chad, it should be no surprise that chair shots and leaping off of 20 ft. ladders appeal to me. It's how I live brother!! ACTION!
Those worlds are now going to collide in a falls count anywhere, street fight, courtesy of Titan comics. The adventures of these wrestlers will not be limited to the squared circle. If you couldn't have guessed by looking at the cover to the left, they are going to encounter and beat the hell out of numerous sci fi/ fantasy threats! The first cover has HHH beating up zombies! It's as if the WWE has finally read all the letters I've been writing to them about how to make things more awesome on their shows. I'm anxiously awaiting to see if Vince rides around the ring on a chariot of fire while barking commands at tigers.
Whether or not these comics will be "good" remains to be seen. These are comics based off of wrestling characters, some cautious optimism should be used. True wrestling fans remember the Ultimate Warrior and Undertaker comics. Those were not considered "good" comics in the classical sense, but there are people who enjoyed them.
I can say that I will definitely be picking up the first issue when it ships on 3/23/10 at Coast City. If for any reason these books are not ordered, I will be dishing out tombstone piledrivers to Tony and Gerald.

Until next time!
